I think my husband and I tell each other almost everyday of how lucky we are to have Fiorina as our daughter. I have to admit that she was a nightmare for us as a newborn for the first three months. I swear to God every day when it was 5 pm, she started to cry and scream for the next 3 to 4 hours. As a brand new mom with no experience at that time, I thought I was going to die from her crying so much and nothing we did seem to comfort her. NOTHING! I was pretty devastated. But after that period, the crying suddenly stopped and things suddenly got better (perhaps my prayers were answered or it’s just a phase that she gotta went through..whatever it was, we were glad it was over!). From that day on (I swear to God again) she was the sweetest little baby up to this date! I’m serious! She’s turning 3 in about 2 months and she is just so sweet and gentle. A sweet heart indeed. I trust that she’s going to be a very good role model and sister to our second child. I just love these photos of us and how sweet she was in this photo 🙂
Now I’m 35 weeks and the tummy has gotten even bigger in 2 weeks. Dr.T told me that the baby’s is in head-down position now. I just have to be honest that I’ve been very very anxious this time. I keep on having this feeling that baby might come earlier than due date. I’ve packed my hospital bag (believe it or not!). The baby is not moving as much as before, but still moving quite a bit and it actually hurts me sometimes when he or she moves. Fiorina saw me stopped in the middle of walking and closed my eyes and she said “mommy is hurting” and I was. She came and kissed the tummy. Now, if that’s not the most effective pain reliever, I don’t know what is. I’ve to run to bathroom so often at night time and hardly have any good sleep recently. Lots of vivid dreams. Lots of things going on inside this body for sure. I guess I’ve come to the point where “okay…I’m ready for this pregnancy to be over, but please don’t come too early too” kinda feeling. I have to admit the first three months and the last two months of pregnancy can be rough on the mommy. I don’t want to sound like someone who is not grateful because I am feeling very blessed for having Fiorina and our-soon-to-be newborn as part of our family, there is simply no doubt on that part. It’s about time too that we meet this little precious inside me. The more I think about it, 9 months is a pretty long time to be inside somebody else’s body 🙂
I can only pray that everything goes well and I hope the next time I update again, I can show you the photo of our precious. Wish me luck !!
